The Ripples of Hope Festival celebrates the power of people to make human rights a reality for all.
Inspired by people – their stories, their strength and their creativity – Ripples of Hope is a new, unique 5-day festival for all of us to:
THINK ABOUT THE CHALLENGES WE FACE AS COMMUNITIES AND AS HUMANITY;
CELEBRATE THE POWER OF PEOPLE TO MAKE CHANGE; AND
EXPLORE HOW WE CAN – TOGETHER – TAKE ACTION TO MAKE HUMAN RIGHTS A REALITY IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND ACROSS THE WORLD.
